Family Medical Clinic “Fit Family 5” Saturday, May 18th


FitFamily5Join us for our 6th annual Family Medical Clinic “Fit Family 5 Mile” high-altitude event featuring a 5 Mile run/walk plus children’s events at 7,522 ft. elevation. The event takes place on Saturday, May 18th, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. Our event is unique – not only does it offer a scenic, high-altitude race for the competitive runner, but also fun for the entire family! A variety of children’s activities will be available throughout the morning. It promotes fitness for the whole family, with two separate events held at the same time. Adults may run, walk and bring strollers for the five miles along Fish Creek bike path and around the golf course with spectacular views of Longs Peak. Additionally, for the 6th year we will be offering a team-based racing competition! Pre-registration fee for the race is $25, discounted for team competition. Many competitive runners find our race great altitude training for the Estes Park Marathon. Prizes for individuals by age group, team winners, and “Best Dressed Team” awarded immediately following race, and raffle for donated prizes.

Children will enjoy fun of their own in Stanley Park! Children of all ages will have the opportunity to participate in activities that represent games from around the world. Estes Park Cross-Fit will be facilitating all of the children’s activities. All participating children will receive a competition bib and awards. Children will be divided into the following four age groups: 3 & under, 4 & 5 year olds, 6 & 7 year olds, and 8-10 year olds. Parent/Adult supervision is required for all young participants.
